Côtes de Morogues

Menetou-Salon Rouge AOP

Our Côtes de Morogues cuvée is a benchmark of the appellation. Born on the plateau and clay soil hills of the Morogues village, benefiting from various south and south-east exposures, the Pinot Noir and the Sauvignon Blanc thrives in this ideal environment.

APPELLATIONS CUVÉES

The Menetou-Salon appellation stretches on a narrow strip of hills starting west end of Sancerre and going up to the north east of the Bourges city. The appellation covers 560 hectares of ‘Terres Blanches’ terroir of south facing hills tucked between the Pays Fort plateau and the Loire river plain. Menetou Salon enjoys a long lasting history and was mentionned by Jacques Coeur in 1450. The diversity of the Terres Blanches terroir endows a legitimate identity to the Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.

WINEMAKING & AGEING

Planted on numerous steep hills with varying sun exposures, our vineyard requires a great deal of attention to get its essence. At harvest time, the daily tasting of the berries in each vineyard enables us to precisely choose the ideal picking date. The grapes are cold-macerated in whole bunches for a week before the alcoholic fermentation starts. The Pinot Noir thrives in Menetou Salon!

FOOD PAIRING

A refined balance of minerality and varietal flavors, our Côtes Morogues will compliment your veal cutlet with eggplant, chicken tagines or cheeses such as livarot or mimolette.
